He's a cutie pie

I've been very quiet in blog land due to one thing and another, hopefully though I'm back on track and I'm definately raring to go. I should have new cards to show over the next few days but definately next week when life will be back to some semblance of normality :o)
My blog looks terrible the template I had on here stopped working while I was away and I can't seem to get it back on track so bear with me.

In the mean time I have this card to show you. I so enjoyed making it but then I particularly love making cards for kids.

I coloured him with my trusty promarkers and then cut him out and decoupaged his little vest and shoe. I created a patchwork effect for the background and die cut some cute co-ordinating buttons.

Enjoy your day wherever you are.
Happy Crafting.

Jellypark says thank you

It's been a while since I posted, I've had a terrible technology fail to deal with amongst other things and it has meant that not only could I not craft but I couldn't update my blog either. I'm back now and raring to go :o).

I'm delighted to announce that the latest challenge over at Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog is all about saying thank you. We would love to see any projects where you are giving thanks to someone.

My team got to work with the new release images of which there are 2. I chose this super cute little squirrel or squibbel as my little girl used to call them (I like that better to be honest.) I didn't make a card, shock horror but a cute tag.
I started colouring him up and noticed a cloth on my table from when I had been cleaning so I wondered what would happen if I loaded the cloth with my blender pen, well it gave a great texture for his fur, success :o) 
My mum brought me the little wooden acorn and foam leaf from Poland and they work perfectly with the image which is available from the jellypark store. There's also a super cute little bird image available to.

Have a great weekend and happy crafting.
Mel :o)

p.s my blog looks a mess, while I was away something happened to it and the template stopped working, it messed everything up and I'm really struggling to get it looking nice again so please bear with me.
